Beyond! The lobby views alone were worth the plane ride! Not a detail was forgotten! Fabulous room, the owners took lots of care in adding some great touches. Modern kitchen, and fantastic shower! Even the toiletries were not an after thought. There is a lovely breakfast service offered, and one should take full advantage of those croissants & fresh squeezed...

We went for a ladies long weekend and it was fantastic. From the moment we arrived everything was subtly, thoughtfully and elegantly arranged for us. The location is a short walk to amazing food and beaches. The rooms are great, the pool is perfect- we did yoga, drank rum drinks and relaxed. All I can say is great views, great...

This hotel was absolutely fabulous. I have traveled to smaller, boutiques all over the world (Thailand, Caribbean, Australia, etc.) and L'Esplande was definitely at the top of the list. Beautiful views, amenities, immaculate rooms, staff and owners were awesome. The location to restaurants, beach and attractions made it easy to go out to the beach, shop or dinner but honestly...

We stayed at the villa in the hotel L'Esplanade in Grand Case. This hotel is in a fantastic location at the north end of Grand Case. Grand Case is full of restaurants, mostly French, all within walking distance or using the local shuttle with Johnny. The hotel is well maintained by Marc and Christin. The views from the villa are...

This hotel was indeed beautiful. The room was surprisingly small (we had a Deluxe Loft), but it was impeccable. The vaulted wood ceiling, the brand new mini kitchen, the large, beautiful bathroom with double sinks - it was still worth it. Very cozy and romantic, actually. The balconies are very private and have wonderful views. The staff seemed friendly and...

The staff are warm, welcoming, professional and helpful in every way. The accommodations are immaculate and well maintained. And we enjoyed our breakfast on the balcony overlooking the bay. The...

Our most recent stay was ended last week and we are already planning our next visit. We selected Grand Case in 1989 because it was billed in brochures (no internet back then) as the "Gourmet capital of the Caribbean". It has never disappointed. We began to stay at L'Esplanade shortly after it opened and after about 35 stays (we've lost...

We just returned from a 4 day stay at Hotel L'Esplanade. What an unforgettable experience topped off with the best staff. We stayed in a 1 bdrm oversized loft. The balcony is the perfect place for sunsets. The hotel is very close to the best restaurants in Grand Case and perched up on a nice peaceful hill. I could not...
